PLAN AHEAD! If you need any books from another college or public library, NOW is the time to order them! Some of these requests can take up to two weeks (14 days) to arrive here, so plan ahead if you have a report due, or need the items to study for exams. The longer you wait, the slimmer your chances of receiving the items on time. Please fill out an ILL request for all items needed from other libraries, or call us at 232-6125 for assistance.
We cannot order e-books from other libraries due to copyright restrictions, so make sure you’re requesting the print book format (or ask a librarian for help)!
*Articles usually take sooner to be delivered, so you still have time to order those.
FYI: You may want to book your Study Room in the Library NOW, before all the rooms and most popular times are taken for Exam weeks. It’s easy to do – you can reserve on the iPad in the Library near the Circ Desk, or do it on your own computer – just check out the Study Room Reservations link on the front of the library homepage and follow the EZ directions. Just remember the Rule of “3” – at least 3 people need to be in your study group to reserve a room! White Boards and other amenities are available in most rooms.
This Sunday, March 11th begins Daylight Savings Time. Don’t forget to set your clocks and watches one hour AHEAD on Saturday night, which means you lose one hour of sleep….(until November).

Due to the popularity of our August Book Club pick “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry”, our September Book Club choice is the enchanting ‘companion’ novel “The Love Songs of Miss Queenie Hennessy” by Rachel Joyce. While ‘Miss Queenie’ is waiting for Harold’s visit as he treks across England, she decides to write to him – and tell Harold everything she’s kept secret for 20 years. Order your copy today through ILL – just call us at Borrower Services and we’ll be happy to help you. (232-6125)
